Doyle, Sir Arthur Conan, Tales of Terror and Mystery

A fully annotated collection of spooky tales from the master writer behind Sherlock Holmes

While he is now mostly associated with his Sherlock Holmes stories, the prolific Arthur Conan Doyle was also celebrated for the many masterful tales he wrote outside of that cycle. In this collection, published in 1922, he compiled various pieces of short fiction which fall into the categories of horror and detective fiction, two genres for which he has become a byword. These eclectic, captivating tales, dealing with topics such as mysterious jungles in the sky, 17th-century torture techniques, an enigmatic Brazilian cat, and a train mysteriously disappearing between two stations, showcase Arthur Conan Doyle at his creative best.
